The varsity competed at the 50 team So Cal Challenge on Jan 3-4.  Mike Davis placed seventh, while Phillip O’shea finished in second:

While Phillip dropped a tough 3-1 decision in the finals, this is not the last time he’ll face the Woodbridge wrestler.  He will have a chance for revenge, and knowing Phillip, this will focus him and he’ll come back firing on all 8 cylinders.

Geoff Mellor and Corey Shackelford both performed well too, making it to the “blood round” before dropping.  Along the way, Geoff defeated the ultimate 3rd place finisher from Trabuco Hills.

A few jv wrestlers got some good experience.  Even in the losses, we are seeing improvement and guys are taking steps forward.

We are back in action tonight vs Laguna Hills, #2 in Orange County.  Phillip has the chance to edge closer to Mike Phillips’ career pin record, which has stood since 1988.  Saturday a select squad of varsity wrestlers will compete at Esperanza, while the jv and fs teams are at the San Clemente Rotary tournament.
